According to a report, the Alisal Fire continued to ravage California’s Central Coast, expanding to 6,000 acres on Tuesday with containment at 0 percent as per Santa Barbara County officials.

Beaches, parks, and campgrounds were evacuated because the fire rapidly began to spread.

Authorities had already closed an important thoroughfare and required mandatory evacuations as fierce winds took over the state, fuelling the fast-growing fire that began to rage on late Monday evening in Los Padres National Forest.

U.S. Highway 101, which runs across California to Washington State, remained closed on Tuesday in the vicinity of Santa Barbara. High winds fuelled the fire overnight, which allowed it to leap over across all four lanes along the highway.

Between 100 to 200 structures were in danger according to authorities. Around 600 firefighters battle the flames, and officials said they are hoping for the winds to die down to allow crews to get the flames under control.
